Can a marriage help couples survive medical heart ailments?!

A new UK study suggests there are several health related benefits that stem from a happy union aside from the emotional rewards.
In men, marriage appears to be linked to improved survival rates with the more satisfying the marriage, the higher the rate of survival. Researchers also found that happily married men who undergo coronary bypass surgery are more than three times as likely to be alive 15 years later as their unmarried counterparts.
The quality of the relationship is even more important in women. Satisfying relationships increase a woman's survival rate almost fourfold, the study found.
For the study, researchers tracked 225 people who had bypass surgery between 1987 and 1990. They asked married participants to rate their relationship satisfaction one year after surgery.
So what's the secret? Supportive spouses most likely help by encouraging healthy behavior, like increased exercise or smoking cessation, which are critical to long-term survival from heart disease. These are qualities of the relationship that likely existed before bypass surgery, and continued afterward.
